We put together this article as a compilation of dredgefishing youtube videos.  Dredge fishing is an effective technique to catch more fish because it mimicks a school of baitfish, makes a lot of noise, and sends huge sound waves to the surrounding waters.  We hope that this article helps you spend more time fishing by having this all in one place.  We believe that if a picture is worth 1,000 words then a video is worth 1,000,000.  **Keep Scrolling To Get To The Videos!**

What Is A Dredge?  

A dredge is a contraption that is trolled behind your boat that is supposed to resemble a school of bait. Dredges can be made of natural or artificial lures, or both. Dredges can be trolled on the surface or weighted down to be completely subsurface. While most dredges are fished from large sportfish boats many people fishing smaller center console boats have incorporated them as a key part of their trolling spread.
